Things That Make Me Happy:
Facebook Group Challenge Collab with the Lollipop Box Club
I have had so much fun creating 3 pieces of art, journaling and scrapbooking this week, all based on my favourite theme; Things that make me happy. This is a two week Facebook challenge hosted by Lisa in her Facebook Group Lollipop Box Club Chat and over on my Journaling group Kerrymay Makes A Mess.
It's been a long time since 1, that I have created any watercolour art and 2, that I have done a post for Anna Brim, but yay, I can say that I am happy to be back doing both. I was so inspired by Anna's watercolour snowdrops video tutorial over on her patreon page - patreon.com/mrsbrimbles, that I decided to add my own twist to it using Colourcraft Crystal Colours Brusho as well as watercolour and stamping ink. I still used drawing gum to create a resist for the snowdrops. You can see my full process in the video below.

Hi everyone, wow it's nearly Christmas, time flies! Today I have been playing around with a few things from Anna Brims Patreon goodies to create a Wintery themed art journal page. I'm in love with this page, the colour, the texture, the mood, it all sings to me and makes me warm and fuzzy.
For this page I followed a video tutorial of Anna creating a moon page like this one, but with a painted unicorn... you can get this as a collage sheet and I tell you now, it's stunning (you can see a sneak of it below in the photograph).
I love experimenting with my art and that also means experimenting with the medium and what I create my art work on. I am an avid journal lover (as you know), but I have also been playing around with creating art on canvas.
This can seem daunting, but it needn't be, honestly it is so easy to create a beautiful piece of art on canvas. Read on for tips for beginners on getting started on creating your own art canvas.
Hi all, wow I have been feeling so inspired from Anna Brim's latest patreon videos. This month has great content in both the videos and collage sheets that I had so many ideas for this blog post. I decided to take inspiration from a video she shared with her patrons about using post it notes and doodles. I decided to add my own spin to it and use a painted watercolour background using Daniel Smith half pans, then added doodles to that before cutting the whole page up to make a mixture of ATC Cards, Journal cards and post cards. You can see the whole process below.
Hola from Sunny Spain! Yes I am on my holidays in Palma Nova, but scheduled this to go out whilst I was away. Over at Kerrymay Makes a Mess Facebook group last year we ran a challenge for a Travelling Art Journal swap. In the end we had three different circles going and I am pleased to say I have received my journal back. I have been meaning to film the flip through for a few weeks now, so I finally got my backside into gear and have done it. You can see the finished flip through of my book below. Please do drop me a comment on You Tube and leave a thumbs up.
Hi everyone, it's been a while since I shared a flip through of my art journals, so I thought I would do a quick video of a peek into 3 of my art journals to show you the art work I have created recently and when I started. Have a look at the video below for a peek inside.
Happy National Scrapbook Week
This month as part of the Mrs Brimbles Creative Team I have been playing with watercolours and drawing gum again, but in a completely different way to last time. In Anna's latest Patreon tutorials, she has been showing us how to create something called 'Journal Spots', journaling cards that use drawing gum to create a resist area that we can then use to write or journal on. I love them! It's also National Scrapbook Day on Saturday, so happy scrapping!
